Andrew Boon is putting up his gloves up to provide opportunities for youth in the region.
The Lakeshore Catholic High School vice-principal is among more than a dozen people participating in the St. Catharines Boxing Club’s second annual Murphy’s Gloves.
He decided to step into the ring because the money raised will support boxing classes and trips for youth who would otherwise not afford lessons.
“I had one student come up to me and say ‘Let me get this straight, I can pay to come watch you get punched in the face?’ So, I said ‘Yes you can, it’s all for a good cause,” Boon said with a laugh.
At the high school he encounters students on a daily baises who are unable to take part in activities due to costs. Boon said it will be great to see youth have the opportunity to participate in something without the financial concern.
